now becomes president of the united states. very interesting circumstances, obviously. we are just about to wrap up the war in europe. we are island hopping our way to japan. i mean, it looks promising, and yet there are all kinds of potholes along the way. we still have to finish the defeat of germany. we still have to finish off japan. how we do that, when we do that, and then one of the consequences of what we're doing, that's the rest of this story. truman is going to meet with stalin and churchill in potsdam, germany, after hitler is defeated. it's a new big three now with harry truman being the president now instead of roosevelt. truman's attitude is going to be very different from that of roosevelt, and some indication of that change of u.s. policy comes right away. remember i mentioned to you that even vice president harry truman had not been kept informed of the manhattan project. when he becomes president it's like, okay, there are a few things that you probably need to know. one of them is we've been working on a bomb and, you know what, it's the biggest, baddest bomb ar
, it's not just the united states cozying up to japan, but it's going to explode. the cold war is going to heat up, if you will, in korea. now remember the last lecture, world war ii, we talked about korea being occupied by japan. once the war is over, the united states and the soviet union decide to divide korea with the united states being in control of the southern part of korea. the soviet union is going to be administering the northern part of korea. eventually, both u.s. and ussr agree that we will withdraw and allow the koreans to have some degree of self-determination. we're going to pull out, soviet union's going to pull out. the koreans will be able to determine their future and their fate. and we both did. the difference is, when we pulled out, we basically took everything with us. when the soviet union pulled out, they left behind a stockpile of weapons. the most modern military technology that they had at the time. and that's a temptation that was going to be used the following summer, 1950, north korea, with the use of soviet military armaments, they will invade south kore
in his speech in prague. the very first summit was held in the united states in 2010. two years later we gathered even more leaders together to focus on the seriousness of the risk of nuclear terrorism, the vulnerability of nuclear material around the world, the international cooperation it will take to secure that material, and prevent it ever coming into the hands of terrorists. >> so it is material as well as existing weaponry? >> and that is right. covers both sets of concerns. >> then you take it one level further. and know-how is involved. >> that is exactly right. >> in the united states, often we are more concerned nowadays -- is the correct phrase a suitcase bomb or something like that? >> improvised nuclear device. >> tell me the phrase again? >> improvised nuclear device. >> what does that mean, in my language? >> it's a pretty crude weapon, but it has probably a lot more material than our own warheads that we have built to go on the front end of missiles and travel reliably 3,000 miles. an improvised nuclear device would be bigger than a suitcase. the smaller you are, the mor
important basic research projects in american history underway in the united states. tim was the founding director of that project. after his service on that project and continuing to publish other acclaimed books, he now actually holds his job as the collector of the richard nixon library out in california. as the director of the nixon library, tim has not only been organizing world history projects of his own, he's actually set precedents in almost setting the model of how to run a presidential library under the most difficult possible circumstances. it's a tribute to his abilities. then to tim's right, your left is bob strong. i know bob strong principally through his scholarship. bob works in that strange netherworld where you study american politics by understanding its political history. some days he looks like a political historian and could be an exemplar of both. i think he's probably the single most prominent and important historian of the carter presidency to publish so far. his work on carter's foreign policy is today the standard work that any scholar looking at that must rea
to advance of the work of the -- initiative that benefits the united states national security. at the end of my term, i will look forward to new opportunities to serve indiana had to serve our nation. i will embrace projects where i can deliver the most benefits. i will continue to support the program in any way that i can. i also want to build on my work related to nutrition and energy issues, both locally and globally. i've no regrets about running for reelection. all of us should believe in the inability of standing before the public and asking -- of the nobility of standing before the public and asking for their votes. i still counsel young citizens to consider elective public office and i hope some listening to me tonight will do just that. serving the people of indiana in the united states and it has been the greatest honor of my public life. hoosier's deserve the best representation possible. they deserve legislators who will listen to their entire spectrum of citizen views and work to achieve consensus. they deserve legislators to go to work speaking about how they can solve probl
into the bureau of united states colored troops. attention was brought to how these soldiers were organized, how they fought, and what they accomplished in the civil war. attention was brought to an african descent community that fought to save the union and free themselves by enforcing the emancipation proclamation. attention was brought to an organized community that planned for and executed that plan to end the tyranny of slavery in league with the constitution and to gain the rights of citizens in league with the constitution. attention was brought to one of the best kept secrets in american history. now if the overt story of the soldiers and sailors, guides, scouts, spies, nurses, was -- one of the best kept secrets in american history, then the covert story is a secret within a secret within the best kept secret. and when we talk about women in the civil war, african descent women in the civil war, that's another layer of one of those best kept secrets in american history. one of those untold stories. tonight i don't want to just talk about women in the civil war as a list of personalities
distrust and resentment of the united states can be traced to the mexican war. the mexican war also hastened the civil war. it might not have been fought if the mexican war had not opened the volatile slavery debate. now, the mexican war's often confused with the texan war for independence from mexico ten years earlier in 1836. the texas revolution is known for the battles of the alamo and san ha sin toe -- ha seen toe and the exploits of sam houston and davy crockett. the mexican war is known as polk's war. the 11th president, james k. polk, supervised it from its beginning in may 1846 to the treaty signing 21 months later. the peace treaty transferred 530,000 square miles from mexico to the united states, incredible territory. from mexico we obtained the future states of california, new mexico, arizona, nevada, utah and parts of colorado and wyoming. literally 42% of mexico's territory at that time. the major battles were fought at palo alto, monterey and buena vista, the gates of mexico city. always outnumbered, the americans won every major battle. sometimes, as in buena vista,
in afghanistan, the united states really pulled back. we won the cold war, we won the covert action issue with respect to afghanistan, and as you all have very well pointed out, there were other fish to fry, germany, gorbachev taking a lot of time and effort on the part of the administration. i guess my question is was there any consideration given during that time, to your knowledge, of trying to stay in there in that region, trying to keep an eye on what osama might become, trying to deal with the disease that began with the iranian revolution of going back to a more fundamentalist, islamic approach. i tend to credit the stories that say the administration was busy on another front, but it's worth looking at, because the taliban that had its roots there is still with us. >> i didn't wrk after -- work afghan issues in 1989. maybe you will remember this. hi to look back a bit. as a historian, the interesting thing, you have to remember before the soviet invasion of afghanistan, it is not like afghanistan had been an important place to the united states. in other words, the united states c
believe the 20th century did not just belong to united states, it was more importantly america's responsibility. george bush after all decided to enlist in world war ii after listening to henry stimson, perhaps the greatest representative of that strand of dna in american leadership. he was an inheriter of those values. yes, it took bush eight months to grasp the gorby phenomenon. the reasons for that are complex. frankly, the oral histories give a series of not -- there isn't a consensus view among those who were interviewed. let me say for the sake of argument. let me propose what george bush's problem was in 199. -- 1989. he found himself struck by another great tradition in u.s. foreign policy and was not sure how to manage it. the nixon-kissinger approach of cold realism made a brief comeback in the twilight of the reagan years. iran contra, especially the president's romantic attachment to freeing the american hostages in beirut coupled with president reagan's romantic attachment to a nuclear free world, raised the hackles of many in the american establishment especially
bin laden and had great concerns about plotting attacks in the west, including in the united states. we know that a range of individuals like richard clarke were ringing alarm bells at the white house level. again, at that point, when we go back and look, it administration at that point was focused on things like the balkans and the kosovo war which was 1999. >> putting out fires elsewhere in the national security arena. >> yes. >> you talk about this wave of al qaeda violence. then they get beaten back. sometimes because of their own actions. what caused the temporary defeat the first time? was a launch into afghanistan? >> actually, it is almost the reverse of what we just outlined. the host that they had, the taliban regime, was overthrown. in addition to that, we saw the u.s. approach that was focused mostly on clandestine services. the cia come in a range of other intelligence services in a geospatial way, and special operations forces targeting in afghanistan and in afghanistan and other locations. >> we are talking about in 2001 how the united states fought back by sending in
the united states was foiled. are leaks of the covert operation hurting national security? are airport screeners doing enough to protect passengers? we will ask senator feinstein, chairman of the select committee on intelligence. then, the 2012 campaign is in full swing. well talk milks with republican senator john thune who some believe is a top conned materials in the vice presidential sweepstakes. >> president changes his mind on gay marriage and now it is a campaign issue and we ask the panel how it plays out. all right now, on fox news sunday. hello, happy mother's day from fox news in washington. this week the united states did a joint convert operation with saudi saudi arabia and blocked a terrorist attack. and now to discuss a couple of important domestic issues is the chairman of the select committee on intelligence, senator feinstein. senator, welcome behalf to fox news. let's start with the latest information from yemen where al qaeda is basically headquartered. there is word of two drone strikes that took out two. what is your sense over what the situation is with al qaeda
of the united states has actually been under fire while president of the united states, so abraham lincoln here, standing on the parapet looking out to see where the enemy troops actually were. >> you can watch this and other american artifacts programs site, c-span.org. and watch american artifacts every sunday at 8:00 a.m., 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span 3. >>> the john f. kennedy presidential library convened a discussion on jfk and civil rights. in this discussion, this panel is discussing the president's actions on civil rights. this program is just over one hour. >> so, if we could have your attention. we'll now go to our next panel on the presidencies of john f. kennedy and lyndon baines johnson. so now it is afternoon. good afternoon. and remembering that we're honoring two presidents, george washington and abraham lincoln. here is a little something from abraham lincoln that seems fit for this afternoon. the probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just. that seems to be very appropriate for our conversation about
. >>> this is "gps, the global public square." welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we'll begin today's show in europe. voters in france and greece made their anti-austerity feelings known last weekend and stock markets plunged. we'll have a panel on the big picture and what it means for politics in the west. >>> then robert zoelik will step down as head of the world bank. his exit interview here on "gps." >>> next, we go to israel which has anointed a king. what in the world does it mean? >>> and, finally, the curious case of the guy who has come to be known as american french fry brother. a cultural lost in translation all the way from china. you won't want to miss it. >>> first, here's my take. everyone is looking at europe these days as economic and political protests mount across the continent. the downward spiral in europe has produced a great debate over the virtues of austerity. the idea that government with large budget deficits must reduce these deficits mainly by cutting spending. if they don't get their budgets in order, they won't be ab
. garamendi's district all the way across the united states to try to respond to that threat. they want somebody who will be there quicker and have the opportunity to respond. all are open-source intelligence -- all our open-source intelligence indicates that iran could have nuclear capability by 2015. i do not think anyone wants to gamble by saying that our adverse eight years -- our adversaries are going to be so slow that we can just wait. we cannot wait. this has a rolling time period in which to get done. you cannot just flick a s witch. we know there is a secret deal with the russians were the president believes he will have greater flexibility after the election -- where the president believes he will have greater flexibility after the election. i think most of us on the committee, a majority, believe that we should not be responding to a secret deal with the russians, but responding to the real needs that we have for national security. we need to do missile defense whether this president wants to or not. when you look at the emerging threats, the open source intelligence, it oft
spending, and i think these worries are shared by many in the united states as well. let's get started. >>> it's been a big week in europe, and i have some distinguished experts to make sense of it all. peter mandleson is in london. he has not only held top cabinet positions under the labor governments of tony blair and gordon brown. he has also served as a member of the european commission. joseph joffrey joins us from hamburg. he is the editor of "the german weekly." elaine also joins us. she happens to be in new york, but she is the paris correspondent for the "new york times", a beat she has covered for more than a decade. and david frum rounds things out from d.c. he is a regular on the show and a former speechwriter for george w. bush. welcome all. elaine, let me start with you. you know francois hollande. you have interviewed him. is he a radical? is he a moderate? how does he strike you? >> francois hollande is mr. normal. he got elected president of france because he promised to be a normal candidate and a normal president. when i was traveling with him in 2007, he was so norm
, the united states, maybe 10 years, helping the afghan forces do the job for themselves. it is important to show people that we didn't just cut and run after the fundamental defeat of al-qaeda and the taliban, but peter, will we see that kind of unity coming out of the summit? >> the summit has a habit of bringing a level of unanimity. it will keep the focus on accomplishing the mission on the ground and not generate into a rush for the exit. so i think things are on track to do that but it is important to keep that focus. >> when you talk about the exits, you can't help but think of sarkozy's decision to move with the draw dates of 2013 and now you have illan who is going to be inaugurated who said we should leave at the end of 2012, a year earlier. how does that complicate the situation and does that put france in the position of being a spoiler again? >> i don't think so. it is just one country among 28 to begin with. secondly, we don't know what the new french president will really do now that he is elected. he will be in office three days when he shows up in chicago. the french went
these persons you claim as property are being used to wage war against the united states. i'm going to confiscate such property as contraband of war. and in august of 1861, congress would pass the first confiscation act that would apply to those being used in the confederate war effort. just anybody couldn't enter the camp. fort monroe, one cartoonist would call it the fort monroe doctrine, receiving the contraband. butler would allow women and children in. the children and the wives. of the soldiers, not soldiers, contraband, confiscated. he would allow them in. so you have really the first contraband camp of the war forming at fort monroe. butler would also be in association with abraham galloway as he returned to work with uncle sam. the confederates use african-american lay lor -- labor extensively. and allan pinkerton said that those were the best sources of information. those engaged in hard labor for the confederacy. those individuals, those colored men, persons of african descent are best source of information. and one african-american woman is noteworthy in the information
. even though he was president of the united states, it's really his service as the commanding general of the union army that made his famous. it's a very unusual statue. it faces down the mall from the lincoln memorial. and it's right at the base of the capitol. it's actually several statues together. and it was constructed over time. it was constructed and designed by a man named henry schraidy, who was not a professional artists. he was a wealthy man who went into art and really gave his life to make this statue, which took decades to do. and it was built in stages. first, the marble base was erected in 1910 with bronze lions. then in 1912, the depiction of the artillery in the civil war was added. and in 1916, the depiction of the cavalry is added. and in 1920, this enormous statue of general grant, the statue itself is 17 feet tall. it's on a, i think a 20-foot pedestal. the statue weighs something like 10,000 pounds. it's a bronze horse with a figure of general grant, who's sort of slumped down. people said that the horse looks more alert than general grant does. the horse's ears
of the function the united states. they didn't want to put it on the front page. 9/11 happened 10 or 11 weeks later. ever since then, i have been following al qaeda and terrorism as much as peter has. starting in 2002, i got a tip. we mentioned this in the prologue of the book. i was in a bar in new york city talking to a bunch of agents who were from the fbi task force there. in comes the bomb squad, who were the investigators to the 9/11 plot. after we were talking about terrorism, because they couldn't talk about investigation, i said give me a table or it leads go on. one of them said, he looked around and said in a stage whisper, gentoo. i wrote it on a cocktail napkin and started making calls the next day. the reason i mention this, writing about all of jim al qaeda and osama bin laden, ksm already unction always stood out as much more different than the others. he seemed more politically oriented than others. he liked to have a good time come he had a sense of humor come he was much more organized. gsm was the one who is traveling around the world getting things done, doing things and
of the united states armed forces. their professionalism and dedication to the values we share and hold dear are inspirational. i would personally like to congratulate marine sergeant maker -- a sergeant major receiving an award tonight recognizing the united states armed forces contributions to the defense of freedom. i have sought to raise awareness of the challenges facing our wounded, to help mobilize support and resources for them. we have tried to do what we can to help service men and women leave the military with purpose, hope, and confidence. whether in their working in garments or in the wider community, these fine people are examples to us all and have made an invaluable contribution. last year, i struggled to keep up with four british soldiers who i joined in an expedition to the north pole. each of these men had been gravely wounded on the battlefield of afghanistan theirs was the fastest team to reach people that season. at this very moment, another team of our wounded are returning from mount everest. sadly, i have to be the first to say they were frustrated from reaching the
of the united states senate. there are votes about nothing but political messages and the buffet rule and the interest rate on student loans and we all gree needs to be addressed and they want to do it in a way that the republicans can't support. and the floor of the united states senate and the reason it is not functioning today it is about political gimmicks rather than solving problems and people who are run nothing the country including mr. murdoch are talking about spending and jobs and economy which are all things that are on the hearts and minds of the american people. we need people who come to washington that are serious about the challenges. they would welcome voting on a budget and does something about tax reform and deals with fundmental challenges that frankly that is not happening today. i hope we get a enfusion in nov that helps us to set an agenda and take us in a different direction and work with a republican president who is intend on solve fixing problemms rather thann running for election and using campaign gimmicks. >> this is what reid said about the prospect of
difficult jobs in the united states government former administrator of the tsa. someone came to the issue after 9/11 with the faa perspective also from the private sector with supply chain, risk, that we talk about today with aviation security. the verbs are not always the same as the now not only to comment on his time with the tsa but also a bit of a landscape where we are, where we hope to be with major gaps and shortfalls that we can enhance the country's capability. this is one of the toughest jobs. most people's impression is the dna are irs that is the next agency that has the most contact in the environment they have an important mission. shortly after 9/11 there were steps in what that needed to be taken and quickly. we have to ask the hard questions and you are here to make us smarter. if you have not bought it yet, "permanent emergency" buy it. doing the interviews call in this have to do with your book. the floor is yours. >> thank you for the introduction and for hosting this. praying this consistently same voice in the of the why is it discombobulated world and it is an hono
population in the united states. midterm elections, the turnouts can be tiny by comparison with their president's a year. it is who is unhappiest, who is most upset, his angriest. most of the people that turn out disproportionately. it is why we have presence suffering that midterms. >> larry sabato, let's take two years, two dozen six and 2010. differences? will was the electric? >> almost a mirror opposites. that is not to say you didn't have plenty of people voting in 2006 she showed up again at the polls and to doesn't, in 2006, george bush's sixth year election, we often call it the six year itch. week entitled that preceded the electorate was angry at wish, mainly on account of the iraq war. there was a strong anti bullish trend that was discernible, even in republican red seats. so democrats took control of both the house in the senate. the bush presidency it legislatively was over after the day of the election. still conducted for policy, had become a power and it is still issue administrative regulation, but it changes the character of his presidency industry, or v
. brian mooar has that story for us. >> the next president of the united states, governor mitt romney. >> reporter: in his commencement speech at the largest christian university, romney underscored his stance against gay marriage. >> marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: that line was a guaranteed crowd pleaser at liberty university founded by jerry fallwell and is located in the battleground state of virginia. the presumtive nominee's appearance is an important step in winning over the ultraconservatives who shunned him during the primary. >> we are electing a president, not a pastor. i think if you compare him to obama, yeah. i think by all means we'll side with him. >> reporter: president obama made history by publicly supporting gay marriage and was honoring the nation's top cops. >> the people alive today only because of their courage. >> reporter: first lady michelle obama was at north carolina university talking civil rights and inviting comparisons to gay marriage. >> we we all know there are plenty of serious injustice
to be just. that seems to be very appropriate for our conversation of civil rights in the united states. we enter the conversation and the first panel looking at the double v victory and the world war ii and the cold war and the responsibility of aernie green and little rock nine. the movement by truman and eisenhower, although not supporters of social equality, do something to move the country forward with regard to civil rights. now we come to the terms of john f. kennedy and lyndon johnson. typically regarded by people who think of the modern civil rights movement as two presidents that were very much associated with civil rights. we think we know those stories. the question on the program is to ask how legislation was moved forward? what were the forces that inspired the legislative process by these two presidents to advance actual civil rights legislation? we certainly have the panel to do that. so, let's start with -- because i like a little context -- after we leave eisenhower and now it is john f. kennedy's time, what was happening in the country in terms of the naacp, in terms of w
% is a statement. the governor of west virginia, a democrat, and the united states senator john mentioned will not reveal for whom they voted -- joe manchin will not reveal for whom they voted in the primary. >> wesvirginia vere the barack obama. hillary clinton -- west region and never did love barack obama. hillary clinton buried him. >> lyndon johnson had a similar experience -- >> look what happened to him. >> that indicated he was going to be in trouble. south carolina, the race last year, an unknown individual with a criminal record also won the democratic nomination and got votes from people who knew nothing abt him. >> the democratic party is a big tent party. >> that prison in texas has some of the worst of the worst also. >> there are a lot of angry voters out there bank, if they are voting for cons. >> angry republican voters told lugar take a hike. >> the lugar election, which you could see coming about a month and half ago, is real evidence of such polarization that mr. mourdock said, "the problem with lugar is that he voted across party lines start this in my view, that is n
passed 30 jobs bills out of the house that are sitting in the united states senate. the house is going to act to extend the current tax rates whether we make them permanent or we extend them for a year, that debate is still up in the air but we're going to do our work. it is time for the united states senate to do their work. >> in the last few weeks it seems like the pace of economic recovery has slowed quite a bit. people talking about europe and the price of oil. what's your take on where we are right now? >> i think the economy is slowing. and i would not be at all surprised to see it continue. why? look at what's going on in europe. it's having a very big impact upon the united states. we've got a record low interest rates, yet employers are scared. they're afraid to move forward. >> so can you explain to the american people what the gop would do -- what's number one on the agenda if in fact you get the white house in -- at the end of this year? >> i think dealing with the debt, dealing with our tax code, the two really big issues. the president and i will -- when we had disagreem
officer in the united states armed forces. in this role, he serves as the principal military adviser to the chairman, the secretary of defense on all matters involving joint and combined total force integration utilization, the health of the force, and joint development for enlisted personnel. he is the recipient of many prestigious military awards and decorations, including a purple heart, the commendation medal and other metals. his wife is here tonight, who also deserve recognition. the men and women in uniform better around the room here tonight in uniform are here to represent their colleagues in the five services of our country we applaud them and had an opportunity right before dinner was served to have them backstage in get photographs with members like general powell and all of the honorees, which was a great treat for them. each of them said it was a bigger treat for them to get their picture taken with these enlisted men and women. as an old army sergeant, i would say in bringing sergeant major battaglia up here, for a marine, a he is all right. [laughter] sergeant major b
trying to stop debt repayments in the united states and europe to try to get our economies going. but that was the moment of kickoff. that increased aid. chinese investment. and really critically mobile connectivity. when africans began to be able to connect with each other, you saw the difference in north africa, politically the difference it made. but the difference in terms of business, farmers out in the boondocks being able to talk to the markets and realize they're growing too much wheat, that they need to grow a different crop, the difference this has made is profound. so over the last six years, you've had takeoff. >> you have made observations there in ethiopia, along the somalian border as well. what have you seen? >> yeah. well, we were at just about a mile from the somalian border where the refugees are coming in from the conflict. and there was no famine. they haven't had rain in the north of here for about three years. but there wasn't a famine in ethiopia or kenya, unlike 20 years ago, because those states have grown. they're growing about 8% per an um per gdp. the
at the leadership of al-qaida and those that have been involved in trying to plan attacks on the united states. and with regards to our -- you know, our efforts and our operations, we have been very successful at going after the leadership and those that are directly involved with regards to trying to make those kinds of plans. and i think -- i think the fact that, you know, we continue to be successful with regards to these kinds of threats is an indication of the effectiveness of the operations that we have there. there is a larger tribal operation called aqap. and the yemenis are dealing with them. there are -- i mean, i will say that, you know, they do represent a threat in yemen, and the yemenis are the ones that are pursuing the -- that tribe, aqap, and trying to make efforts to reduce their influence as well. but you know, they are a threat. no one -- no one in any way underestimates the fact that all of them represent a concern for the united states in terms of our national security. but i do believe that we are making effective progress at going after those specific targets that repre
, professor of economics at the -- why is greece so important to united states economy? >> it's not just -- the problem for the united states is the euro zone picture, and the euro zone is an important financial partner. this is important for the u.s. >> greece has had a ripple effect, and now we're seeing the protest marches in spain. are these all connected? >> well, they are connected in the sense that spain face the similar problems. so they are important in the sense that greece is pretty special for what they can salvage. >> could the greek failures have an impact possibly even on the presidential election here in the u.s.? >> well, it may because developments in greece may create a situation that will affect the performance of the united states economy, and that, of course, may have an impact on the election, and the main challenge that would happen is that a greek debt default -- which would create a new possibly lower credit crunch, and the main risk for the united states economy is that we may have a new financial crisis. this time coming from the european area, the united stat
and on jobs and what they see in the united states senate today led by democrats is something that you mentioned earlier and that is the fact that we budget inssed a put in three three years. it has become dysfunctional and more recently a place where the presidential campaign has sort of been litigated. they moved the presidential campaign to the floor of the united states senate. we continue to have votes nothing about political messaging. talking about the buffett tax rule and the interest rate on student loans which needs to be addressed but they want to do it in a way that republicans can't support. the reason it is not functioning today is because it has been converted into something that is about political gimmicks rather than about involving problems. the people run aring across the country are talking about spending, they are talking about debt and jobs and talking about the economy which are all things on the hearts and minds of the american people and we need people to come to washington who are are serious about addressing those challenges. many of us in the united states
